project - trivia game

P: n/a
For my final project, I'm trying to do a GUI based game similar to are
you smarter then a 5th grader. I've been working on it and am stuck
with some code someone helped me with to randomize the A,B,C,D letters
that the correct answer is assigned too. The code that does this is
highlighted in bold and the code that assigns it to a variable is also
in bold so I can test it in the console window. Problem is, it's always
stuck at letter A and doesn't always give the correct answer. The
correct answer is always position 1 in my make math question list.
Could someone please help?

thanks

BTW, to whoever asked me why I don't use functions b4, I'm using them
now that I've learned how to... :P ;)
